When we look at a face, we can usually guess how old the person is who belongs to the face. But did you think that you can tell the age of a building by examining its windows?? "Today I’m taking you on a historical tour of the city of bari in italy", announces carmen enss and buries the 80 or so boys and girls who have come to her lecture on "windows, the eyes of houses" have come.
The cities of bari in italy and bamberg have many things in common
Bari is an italian port city. Maybe you know that the country italy looks like a boot with high heel on the map. "And bari is where the heel of the boot begins", says the scientist. As a preservationist at the university of bamberg, she researches how old buildings and entire cities can be preserved.
Bari and bamberg have been friends for a long time: "almost 800 years ago, the city of bari donated this coat to the city of bamberg." Carmen enss shows a photo in which you can see a blue coat with all over golden embroidery. "And bamberg and bari have much in common": both cities are located in the southeast, both have "BA" as license plates and both have an old town with small streets "everything is under monument protection", explains the scientist.
